In the meantime, the Committee would be pleased to be informed over what investigations had been done in order to verify the information conveyed to the Storting regarding the fiscal support’s use and it’s extent by the PA; and the extent of the “social support”.

The Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs,
Leader of the Committee
